Only 13 episodes were ever made, but the programme has remained popular down the generations and was voted the all-time favourite children's programme in 1999. The show has now delighted viewers of children’s television for 50 years.

So, when he's isekai'd to another world armed with magic powers (and an overactive imagination), he forms Shadow Garden, an underground organization that fights an evil cult he totally made up. But while Cid happily roleplays his favorite antihero tropes, little does he know Shadow Garden's recruits treat his every lie as gospel, and worse yet? That "fake" cult is actually real, and they're not happy his power fantasy just impeded their plan to gain ultimate power!"
